With creative director Raf Simons at its helm, CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC is an exciting chapter for the iconic New York City label that launched back in 1968. Once synonymous only with designer undies and denim, the fire new pieces (in many cases, literally) conflate decades of U.S. heritage style, and many emerged as grails of the new season when they hit the FW18 runway. Now, we’re narrowing the line down to those deserving of a place in your wardrobe.
Currently available at Montreal-based SSENSE, our picks from the CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC FW18 collection go from low-key accessories to statement outerwear. Most notably, our favorite of the label’s eye-catching firefighter styles come in the burnt brown jacket, reworked with an embroidered house logo, industrial-style reflective bands, and chunky metal fastenings.
Coming in the same emergency services aesthetic is a full-look jumpsuit and a pair of relaxed-fit gabardine trousers with front zips and a reflective orange and grey trim, each of which will take your street-ready fits to catwalk heights. Meanwhile, more easily integrated items include a super cozy knitted balaclava for chillier climes, a smart pale pink turtleneck collar tee, and a grained leather card holder that’ll transcend seasonal trends.
